Asian Elephant Elephas Maximus Classified as endangered by the IUCN with a population decline of at least 50 percent over the last three generations. The Asian Elephant is the largest living mammal in Asia.

An elephant rider, or Mahout, is bonded with his elephant at an early age and will stay for his entire lifetime. Once an elephant is trained it will be guided by the Mahout and used to provide rides to tourists or to assist with logging and heavy moving.
